"Sinful" is a novella by Sharon Page that explores Regency society from a different perspective. Estelle Desjardins is a successful dressmaker who caters to Society women but finds herself in the unique position of being able to aid those young debutantes who are being forced into loveless marriages but who already have a beau that their guardians/parents would not consider eligible. She considers it to be her mission to investigate the prospective grooms and has both facilitated some escapes as well advised against others. She is startled to discover that the Bow Street Runner Trevelyan (Lyan) Foxton, who shows up investigating her, is none other than the same person she gave her heart and body to when they were both in society's underbelly. The two find themselves forced to be guarded allies but also working at cross-purposes. Current circumstances dictate that Estelle keep even more secrets from the man that she still has strong feelings for but Lyan may never recover from the shock of her betrayal.

A wonderfully entertaining vignette that covers an amazing breadth of detail in a very compact tale. The characters have depth and emotion that encompasses both their past and present situations and as usual, Ms. Page explores the roles of those who occupy positions outside of the usual aristocratic echelons that people typical Regency romances. A nicely romantic tale.

Lyan and Sally (now Estelle) grew up together in a rough neighborhood but after their night together where they agreed to marry she leaves him and doesnt see him again until 10 years later. Although I can understand why Estelle left Lyan, I dont get why then would she help other woman marry for love yet doesnt give herself the opportunity to do so? Clearly he still loves her and yet she still refuses to trust him and gives excuses on why they cant be together again. Ok so she has a fear due to what her mother said and went through, yet is willing to put other women into that potential path - oh but it's ok because she does background checks of the potential men before agreeing to help these women elope - yet she cant trust the one man who has more than proved himself - practice what you preach woman! I thought she was stubborn and stupid and to make matters worse she doesnt tell Lyan about her suspicion about his sister. Oh and let's not forget the daughter he never knew about. Im sorry but there was nothing to like about her. The potential was there but the reasons of why the heroine acted the way she did were in my opinion weak and I cannot recommend this novella. Lyan was great though but Estelle didnt deserve him and I really dont know why he loved her and why he forgave everything she did to him so quickly. I wish Lyan had been more reserve and took pride in himself and didnt so easily time and time again try to convince Estelle to be his. Oh and how convenient that Lyan was now to become the lost earl, it should have stayed between the shop owner and the bow street runner!

I loved this story! Trevelyan and Estelle have a complicated history and when Trev comes back into her life sparks fly. Estelle left Trev years before directly after they slept together for the first time (both losing their virginity to each other) and took half his money. Even though this sounds like an awful thing to do, Estelle is a wonderful woman who makes up for her mistakes. She's had a hard life and struggled to make a success of herself. She makes dresses for the wealthy women in society but secretly helps young women escape to Gretna Green to get married to men of their choosing if they want to avoid loveless marriages.

Bow Street Runner Trevelyan has been hired to find a missing debutant and his investigation leads him right to Estelle's dress shop. He knows she's lying to him about not having a clue where the missing woman might be and the heat that unfolds between them at seeing each other after so long is scorching. Even though at first he's rightfully angry at her, his pursuit of her is very sweet. Sinful is a great story about forgiveness and reunited lovers. I love second chance stories and this one is bite-sized and perfect for when you don't have time to read a full novel. There was just enough intrigue, suspense and romance to make this story perfectly balanced.

I understand that this is just a novella, but I was still disappointed. There was so much more story that could have been told. The premise was intruiging and had real potential but I think Ms. Page sold it short. I so enjoyed the first book of hers that I read (The Club) and I have been more or less disappointed by everything since. I am beginning to think that The Club was an anomoly.

That being said the characters were likable people and I did enjoy their story. The price is right too. If you just want a quick read, it's worth the price.

I started this hoping for a fun historical romance. I've read Sharon Page before and have always enjoyed her books. She usually writes engaging characters with a good plot and a lot of steamy scenes. This one though didn't really make the cut. It starts out pretty good:

Lynn (Trevelyan), is one of London's most elite Bow Street Runners and an Earl in the making. He is out to question Sally (Estelle Desjardins), a beautiful elite seamstress to the ton about a missing debutante who she had made a dress for. Lynn and Sally were once 'married' when they were young and poor, but Sally ran out on him on their wedding night. Now, 10 years later, Lynn has a reason to track her down and find out what happened both for his investigation and his heart.

Sinful sounds like its going to be really good, but it's too short to really hold a storyline. The book jumped around, the characters weren't flushed out and the pivotal scenes were short and jumpy. You didn't have a chance to really know Lynn and Sally. So many things are brought up but never explained and the 'pat' ending makes it even more frustrating. The sex scenes were too long and drawn out in my opinion. I like to read a book for more than just sex. This books only saving grace is that it's short. I'm really disappointed because again, Sharon Page is a better storyteller than this. But it seems like she just penned this in the spur of the moment and then moved on. Even for the price I wouldn't recommend this read. :(
